First what I need to do is install a debian on a 3300mx computer which is based on a vortex cpu. The problem is the debian installer always crash because the required drivers are in the kernel as modules only. So I tried to create a custom kernel with the required drivers as native instead of modules. After a few attemps I managed to get 3 files:
I'm not even sure that I compiled these files the right way. I tried to follow some tutorials that asked me to compile my kernel with the command line :
$>fakeroot make-kpkg --append-to-version "-custom" --revision "0.1" --us --uc --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers
The problem is that when I do that, I've got the following output:
- /usr/bin/make EXTRAVERSION=-boxls ARCH=i386 -C Documentation/lguest
- make: * Documentation/lguest: No such file or directory. Stop.
- make: * [debian/stamp/build/kernel] Error 2
To get the 3 .deb files I had to use a simpler command line without all the params like --append-to-version so I'm not sure they are good. Once I'll be sure my .deb files are ok I need to create a custom tftp debian installer to try it on the computers. I'm lost because I can't find out what to do with my .deb files as all the tutorials ends with a simple installation on the current system instead of the creation of a custom debian installer... Can you help me please? Thanks a lot for your help!
